Fitness Friday - 8/3

It's August, y'all. August. There's only 144 days until Christmas. Say what?!

Speaking of Christmas, I cannot wait for cooler weather, that's for sure! The heat was partially a contributing factor to my lack of outdoor runs this week, but that's ok. I still managed three Orangetheory workouts and they were good ones that left me with sore muscles the following day (or days)! Let's see how this week went for me....

Last week was kind of a crazy one around here, so that meant I had the chance to go to Orangetheory on a Saturday! This workout was what they called the Orangetheory Trinity (a combination of endurance, strength, and power) which encompassed a 14 minute row. Yes, you read that correctly....14 minutes...on the rower. Ouch.

I mean, I love the rower, but 14 minutes...yikes!

This meme that I found online said it perfectly. For all my Bachelor and Bachelorette fans out there, you'll understand this one!

On Monday night, we celebrated my mom's birthday, which meant no run or workout for me. I thought I might have a chance to squeeze one in, but it didn't happen. Oh well!

My next trip to Orangetheory took place on Tuesday afternoon and this time, it was all about endurance. With a combination of the mini bands on the weight floor and a run to row (running on the treadmill and rowing on the rower combo), this was one of the toughest workouts I've done at Orangetheory to date. My legs are seriously still sore.

On Wednesday, I couldn't I didn't. Well, I might have gone to work but I didn't do anything extra apart from that!

Thursday was another Orangetheory workout. This was also another endurance workout, but it consisted of a 2000 meter benchmark row. The goal was to hit 2000 meters between 6-10 minutes and I finished in 7:30. I was trying to be one of the first off the rower and I ended up being the third off. Not too shabby for only doing this about 6 weeks!

We also did another run to row (running on the treadmill and rowing on the rower combo) yesterday, which I loved!

In all, these workouts this week were amazing and definitely left me feeling it later!

Other exciting things that took place this weekend were some good eats!

A local restaurant that makes fabulous pizza decided to make their pizza even more fabulous by offering a cauliflower crust. Y'all. This was so good. Seriously. Even my husband who hates cauliflower loved it! WIN! 

I also discovered a new favorite salad from Greenhouse! It was called the Chinatown and it was delicious! I can't wait to have it again!

In other randomness, Poshmark has become my new BFF! These two Lilly pieces were purchased for our cruise and they arrived this week! Much to my surprise, both items fit perfectly! I cannot wait to wear them!!

We are headed back to Texas this weekend to spend time with my brother for his birthday! We are also going to take Brayden to Sea World in San Antonio and are so looking forward to spending the weekend with family! I might evenf try to squeeze in an Orangetheory workout while I'm there!

Have any weekend plans? Hope you have a great one!!


  1. I finally started a Christmas list. With all the Christmas in July stuff, I realized we have less than half a year.

    1. It's so crazy how fast this year has gone! It will truly be here before we know it!

  2. Holy cow, I cannot imagine lasting 14 minutes on the rower - you go girl!! Hope you guys are enjoying SA!

    1. Thank you so much! We had a blast in San Antonio and can't wait to return! :)

  3. I love that Bachelor meme. Traveling has thrown me off from the current season. The season finale is tonight, right?

  4. Awesome week of workouts and happy birthday to your mom!
